Jobs abroad, new courses attract students to nursing

PUBLISH DATE 19th July 2018

Two years ago, Maharashtra touched a record high with its nurses emigrating to foreign countries.

New specialisations in radiology, palliative care and neonatal care in the US and the UK and in Ireland and Norway with lucrative jobs have had a trickle-down effect on more students choosing nursing. In India, their working conditions and salaries are poor, but the demand is growing.

Suman Tilekar, treasurer of Maharashtra Government Nurses Federation, said there is an increase in nurses going to the Middle East countries along with the US and the UK. Going abroad is a trend among nurses from Kerala, but nurses from Maharashtra prefer not to stay away from their families and hence don’t venture out, she added.

“A change is coming. Low pay, despite 8-9 hours of work in private hospitals, has led to nurses from the state to choose job opportunities abroad. They must compulsorily serve in the country for two years after which they can apply for jobs abroad. Once they get an offer, they apply for a No Objection Certificate from the Maharashtra Nursing Council to work abroad,” she added.

PU Mary, DE Society's Smt Subhadra K Jindal College of Nursing said the women dominated area is also being accepted by men. “Students from the state are taking up nursing more as career prospects are bright in this field, especially the chances to go abroad. We conduct all admissions via the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test. The state students after qualifying must register themselves via Directorate of Medical Education and Research CET cell which will generate a separate state rank list. Allotments will be done based on the ranks according to this.”

Anushree Mandal, an MSc student specializing in psychiatry, said she wanted to go into teaching in nursing and would do her doctorate. “There are jobs if you have good marks and good knowledge of the subject and tutors are in demand. If I change my mind, I can also work as a staff nurse. Private sector does not pay well but the government sector is good,” she added.

Rajiv Yeravdekar, dean, faculty of health & biological sciences, Symbiosis International (Deemed University), said new-age careers are nurse informatics, critical care nursing, coronary care nursing, palliative care nursing, nursing leadership and management, rehabilitation nursing, gerontology nursing and chronic disease management nursing.

Nursing informatics specialists’ can also go for nurse communicators, nurse managers, nurse programmers, and nurse vendors, he added. It requires a special master’s degree programme.

“Genetic nurse, nanotechnology, stem cell technology nursing, holistic nurse, home healthcare nursing and robotic nursing are more fields. Nurse statisticians, clinical research and pharmaco vigilance are highly lucrative,” Yeravdekar said.
